Sandman graduated magna cum laude in Physics from Boston College and holds a Master of Business Administration from Harvard Business School and a Master of Engineering in Nuclear Engineering from Pennsylvania State University.

Anna Giannini has been appointed to the company's investment team as an Analyst. Giannini was formerly an acquisition analyst with Bay Area-based FPA Multifamily LLC. She holds a BS in Real Estate Development from the University of Southern California.
